Nearly thirty years before Victor Fleming took movie lovers "Over the Rainbow" in The Wizard of Oz, filmmaker Otis Turner adapted L. Frank Baum's original story for the screen, teaming young Kansas native Dorothy with Scarecrow, The Cowardly Lion, and The Tin Woodman for the first time on film. Swept away to the land of Oz in a furious tornado, Dorothy and her dog Toto make their way to the Emerald City with a little help from Glinda the good witch and some exciting new friends. But Momba the bad witch is never far behind, prompting Dorothy to seek out the wizard in hopes of finding a way back home.
